The Now of Sound


Published July 20, 2008


Atmospheric drones of the sonic stratosphere make up "The Now Of Sound", a collaborative effort by Tanner Menard and Jeph Jerman. The power of its minimal sonics act as a transformative medium to conscious thought.

Jeph Jerman and Tanner Menard both have a unique notion to the world of sound. When meeting in the desserts of Arizona, Tanner discovered the unique philosophies that drive Jeph in his ecological recordings. Jeph in his disinterest in contextualizing sound has found that "music" is merely listening to all sonic vibrations. Sound is to be experienced wholly and not isolated by categories. The removal of formal knowledge of music opens up the listener’s ability to hear, experience and enjoy all vibrations.

"The Now Of Sound" was created from a synthesis of synthetic bells written in SuperCollider by Tanner, and desert recordings from Jeph. This amalgamation was then projected with homemade equipment by Jeph onto to the resonant portion of a gong. The resulting frequencies were recorded with a contact microphone then post-processed with basic computer effects.

While "The Now Of Sound" is in actuality music because of the artistic decisions to alter the sonics by Tanner, the work still pays homage to the sonic philosophies matured by Jeph. Described by Tanner, "The Now Of Sound" is a "meditational work that exists in the sonic stratosphere, the highest and most imaginary harmonics where real 'music' takes place."

With his primary interest in consciousness, Tanners suggests the listener use "The Now Of Sound" to tune their listening environment to include external and internal vibrations of their sonic surroundings.
